In response to a confession. I just read my response post and it sounds like we’re stocking up on ammo or something. Trust me, that’s not the case. What I meant was TP, soap, and even plywood in case things get really violent and we have to board up windows or something. Geez!

In response to a confession. I've already started stocking up. I believe that if Trump doesn't win, his Q-Anons, Proud Boys and Boogaloos will start with violence like we've never seen. I hope those who are standing for change now will stand when faced with this BS. Food isn't the only thing we're stocking up on, btw.

My dh thinks I'm crazy, but I'm going out today to stock up on groceries and meat for the next few weeks. I really think either way the election goes things are going to be very volatile and I don't want to take the kids out of the house if it's not life or death.

In response to a confession. I have a family member who actually buys t-shirts, sweaters and jewelry with her cult leader’s name in bling. She’s anti-gay (her daughter is gay but is afraid to tell her), anti-abortion (yet had three abortions between the ages of 15 and 19), thinks Obama was a steaming pile of crap (but has been on ACA for the last five years), and thinks her cult leader is a ‘little aggressive.’ I can’t stand to be around her....so I stay away from the crazy.

My favorite one is this from a while back, "I hate that socialist Obamacare bullshit, I use the ACA instead and it's great." .... Oh, how I wish this was a joke and didn't actually happen. And this was a client, so I had to just nod and smile. Just an FYI, later in the conversation this guy grinned creepily at me and said, "Boy, it must be hard to work with all that long blond hair." ..fucking creep.... Douchebag probably has a couple of those Rambo trump flags on his piece of shit truck.

In response to a confession. It's a way to keep women and minorities, who make up a disproportionate percentage of the poor, from getting ahead. What better way to make it harder to advance in the workplace, go to school, all the things that help get ahead, than have a baby? It's a huge financial burden. The cost of childcare, higher education, medical care, are all huge. And programs to alleviate some of that burden, which actually cost the taxpayers less in the long run, are opposed by the GOP. IT SAVES MONEY, but they oppose them. The fact of the matter is that white men do not want real equality. They have seen the way women and minorities are treated, and they don't want to be treated the same way, i.e. equally. They don't want to have to compete for jobs and promotions. They are afraid of losing their privilege.

In response to a confession. The GOP has done a great job of convincing working class Americans that the reason they can't get ahead is because of immigrants and minorities. They've convinced them that they are leaching off the system and taking their jobs, which is complete BS. It's the ultra wealthy and corporations who are leaching off the system. They are the ones who are keeping wages low while their wealth increases exponentially. I don't understand how these working class people are OK with the fact that folks like Donald Trump pay less income tax than they do. But the GOP says, "But there are people who pay no income taxes." No shit. There are people who SHOULD pay no income taxes, but millionaires and billionaires like Trump are not those people, yet here we are.

Since we're all posting our confusion with right wing viewpoints, here's mine. Trump is well known for being loved among working class voters. It's actually impressive (in a diabolical way) how working class people have been hoodwinked into basically voting against their interests. Not just with Trump, but in recent history and throughout the world, a lot of the working class have become really right wing. It's really amazing to me how a tax cheating billionaire who inherited his fortune has become so popular amongst people who have little money, and so many have absorbed this "Pull yourself up by your bootstraps" mentality when they *know* how difficult it is to live with little or no money to spare. I guess everybody has been brainwashed with this hustle culture American Dream, "Anyone can be a millionaire/billionaire" nonsense. I feel sorry for so many of these people until they start spouting the racist anti immigrant talking points, then I just can't.

I told my kid today that I had an abortion when I was 25. I told him his dad's girlfriend had an abortion. I told him that his aunt and uncle had an abortion. I told him that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare, but that it was part of life. Both my sisters have had abortions. I am absolutely sick thinking of how young people will be trapped in difficult situations without access to abortion. My kid is almost 18. He said it would never happen to him. I told him to wrap it up!

In response to a confession. I also think it's about deeply ingrained hatred of poor people, minorities and women. Either that, or they don't consider that the people most affected by restricted abortion and contraception access are poor people, which means more poor babies who they then have to pay welfare to the parents of. Either they are just totally devoid of logic and haven't thought through who is most affected by restrictions on these things, or they just want to go back to the days where poor people and learning disabled people were sterilized. Also, like someone else already mentioned, whenever a politician puts up a bill to ban child marriage, it's always the super religious that protest. So they also just want to return to a time where they sell off their daughters at 14 to creepy old men, I guess. This is the most messed up, twisted logic. And they dare to call left wingers, dems and even centrists "deviant." This all sounds like eugenics and pedophilia to me. This is some dark age shit.
